Delaware River Report: June 20, 2022

The wind is only going to be 5 – 10 mph out of the North today. That’s going to be a welcome change after the last two days. Yesterday was tough during the day but the wind dropped in the evening and people did find fish on sulphurs and cahills. Isonychias are definitely around and blind casting high floating patterns have put some fish in the net. Nymphing had worked before the hatches and don’t overlook swinging wets. We still have quite a few caddis around. It will be a cool 73 degrees today with a mix of sun and clouds.
